Gervais is such a passionate animal rights activist that he was named PETA’s 2013 person of the year. Every time Gervais come up in the news it is because he is either saving animals, or trying to help the environment. “My first love was nature and wildlife, and, in particular, animals,” he said. “I think animals are all unconditionally perfect, and beautiful. Animals really matter to me.” Gervais often uses Twitter, and Facebook, as social platforms to inform his 4 million followers on the importance of animal adoption, and visiting your local shelter.

“Pop into an animal rescue centre today. Even if you have no intention if taking a little critter home, get a free cuddle and donate a fiver,” said Gerais on his Facebook page. “Animals shelters can always do with any old duvets & blankets too, by the way,” he added.
When he is not trying to save puppies, Gervais also speaks out against fox hunting, bullfighting, and medical testing on animals.
